at this summit. tom perez is the assistant attorney general of the civil rights division in washington, dc, he was nominated for that position by president obama and sworn in in october of 2009 and we are all the lucky -- we are all very lucky that that happened in october of 2009. tom has spent his entire career in public service and on protecting the civil rights of our most vulnerable people. tom actually joined the civil rights division as a young lawyer and while he was there he prosecuted some of the most significant cases in the country. lawyers in the civil rights division get fanned out to places in the country to handle cases in mississippi and alabama and california and all over and tom was one of those people. he was sent to texas to handle a very significant hate crime case when he was a young lawyer that involved a gang of white supremacists that went on a killing spree and ended up shooting 3 people and killing one when he was a young lawyer working in the civil rights division. he later served as a top deputy for attorney general janet reno, he was special counsel to ted k

, and there was death. but overall, it was a bloodless revolution. i like to think of it as the civil rights movement that was truly civil. because masses of people thought carefully about what was at stake and what was right rather than what was expedient or habitual. they thought about what was elevating rather than merely power trying to reinforce itself. that movement, for it not to be understand as one of the most noble, most mature, most sweeping political changes is inconceivable to me. however, it may court the danger of not being recalled that way. and just in case it is in serious danger of drifting into the barely mentioned in our textbooks and in our cultural history, or in case it suffers an untimely demise in its narrative because its promises are as yet incomplete, before that we should contemplate and revere that period as a powerfully moral achievement. and of the many paths that the whole movement took, none was more significant or more singular than the brown v. board of education. there's certainly many celebrations and memorials and books and essays and op-ed pieces all in place

. >> would you be against a group that's against civil rights for african-americans, that 20%, would that be enough to stop out from joining the party? >> absolutely not. >> would it stop you from joining the republican party? you would join a party that didn't believe in civil rights for african-americans? >> what you're trying to do is trying to equate the issue of homosexual marriage. >> i'm only asking the question because i'm going to ask the same question to gregory. >> i am telling you that republicans led the civil rights movement. abraham lincoln was a republican. so i don't accept the premise of your question. i believe wholeheartedly that most americans, today, agree that marriage is between one man and one woman. republican party will stand on that platform. >> well, let me just go through the latest polling. 53%, sir, do believe, they support same-sex marriage. 42% oppose. in your party, perhaps in your world, politically, 66% of republicans do oppose. but you just threw out a line there that's not true. most americans support same-sex marriage now, sir. >> well, you kno

and slavery and civil rights, what all americans fought for to get where we are today, they will not risk and a remote chance of going back to the days of bigoted racism and laws that denied opportunities based on the color of their skin. it was wonderful to see rand paul at howard university recently. it is the fact that he showed up. it well known that his intentions are to seek the presidency of the united states as a gop candidate. normally, howard university as an historical black college is not on their agenda. the fact that rand paul went to their first. he does not have a great understanding of the history of race and segregation but that is ok because he was able to take something from those young people who are very bright and well-researched. i had an opportunity to talk to some of the people who were there and got to chat afterwards. young people are different. they are open and realize there is something amiss. they are frightened about their job opportunities and prospects for business on a ship and whether they have a real future. they are more open and willing to listen to

. after democratic president lyndon johnson signed the civil rights act and the voting rights act passed by the democrats in congress and after those acts established a frame work from black citizens to exercise and enjoy equal protections. it was white dixiecrats who left the party. those who refused to support civil rights gain was clear the best party was the republican party. so large majority voters become republican voters because they opposed civil rights. we know about opposition to civil rights legislation, don't you? even though you said i've never been against the civil rights act ever. but in 2010 during an interview with the courier journal you said you do not support bans on discrimination by privately owned businesses, and that would mean those students from another historically black college would have had to live with the private decision to deny them a place to sit at that lunch counter. maybe republicans like you don't count that as opposition to the republicans rights act but i bet many howard students do. >> i i don't mean that to be insulting. i'm trying to find out

john, dating back to hep 63 or hep 64 civil rights laws that say women gets equal pay. why do we need another pay? >> i think the notion of that is cruel to women. going forward it would call into question their achievements as though they were made in the ballot box than performance. the markets will bring a new reality and businesses will avoid hiring women because they don't want to pay something that the markets will not bear. >> elizabeth: mike? >> you take away merit pay. you decrease the incentive of people being productive that. is important to a capitalistic economy and that's why thatcher able to turn it around in two short years. >> elizabeth: rich, go ahead. what gdp. unemployment was up . unemployment in two years. >> i will come back to you in a second. my good friend, steve i don't want to accuse him of old school thinking. women have other that's why they were paid less. no, men have other interest. they play golf and that is the problem. >> elizabeth: sorry sabrina. >> the men over all and this is changing thankfully looly. men do focus on is therecareers whether it i
